After Doom Patrol #7 hit back at the end of July, with its Allred-drawn tribute to the Silver Age era of the team. It seemed as if the possibilities were endless for where Gerard Way and Nick Derington might take this lovable team of outre outcasts next. As it turns out, we’ll finally find out just what happened to Casey’s kitty Lotion over the course of the past arc…but not before, per this preview, we drop into Dannyland and catch up with Crazy Jane and Keeg! And just what’s going on in that office building and their ominous rows of filing cabinets?
It’s Doom Patrol! Who can ever say? Next week is too far away! Also check out that great James O’Barr variant cover that I’ll be rushing out to the store to pick up on Wednesday. I’ve bought every Young Animal variant cover so far, and I haven’t been this excited about one since Farel Dalrymple’s.
What is S**t, and why is everyone eating it? Cliff doesn’t like it, but Casey can’t get enough. Sure, Cliff doesn’t like a lot of stuff, but that doesn’t mean he’s wrong to be suspicious this time around. Meanwhile, we find out where Lotion the cat got off to, and how his journey has changed him. Life on the streets has made him an entirely different animal!
Happy Labor Day weekend everybody!
